Title IX and Sexual Respect

At Clackamas Community College, we are dedicated to establishing and maintaining a safe and inclusive campus where all have equal access to educational and employment opportunities. We work to promote an environment of sexual respect, safety, and well-being. In its policies and standards, CCC states unequivocally that sexual assault, gender-based harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking are not tolerated in our educational community.

On April 19, 2024, CCC received the U.S. Department of Education amended its regulations regarding Title IX. The amendments alter the procedures that postsecondary institutions, including ours, must adhere to when addressing allegations of sex-based discrimination. The revised regulations will be effective on August 1, 2024.

We are assembling a dedicated Title IX team to uphold our commitment to Title IX and maintain a safe and inclusive environment. This group will review the Final Rule and determine the necessary actions to ensure ongoing compliance with Title IX in all facets of our programs and activities.

What to Do

If you, or someone you know, has been affected by sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking:

  • Get to a safe place. Your safety is the highest priority. Get away from the assailant quickly. Call 9-1-1 or CCC' Campus Safety at 503-594-6650 (on campus).
  • Know that what happened was not your fault. You are not responsible for the actions of others. No one deserves to be sexually assaulted. No one deserves to be stalked. No one has the right to hurt you or touch you against your will or without consent. It is not your fault.
  • Reach out for support. Call a friend, family member or someone else you trust who can be with you and give you support. You can also call the CCC Counseling Department at 503-594-3176 or Clackamas Women's Services at 888-654-2288 to help you work through this experience, to access other resources and help you begin the healing process.
